NGK in general is pretty good, along with Taylors and MSD wires. Cant go wrong with K&N filters. Oil, use synthetic, name brand is up to you. Might want to change the 02 sensor in the engine bay, easy job if its not rusted in. Wheel alignment is good also. Fuel filter and a 180 t-stat with a coolant flush is a good idea. Windshield wipers, especially with the snow coming soon.

Add a PCV valve to that list, and consider pulling your TB for a thorough cleaning. Stay away from Fram oil filters, and bosch ignition/sensor products.

How do you clean the TB? I usually just wipe it down with a rag whenever I have my intake off, but obviously that is not what you meant?

Pull the TB off the intake/SC. Remove the MAF sensor. Remove the TPS. Remove the IAC. Spray, scrub, etc. Especially the IAC seat/passage and the tip of the IAC valve also. Lightly lube the IAC shaft and throttle plate pivots, reassemble and reinstall.

Intake safe cleaner only.

Full tune-up would also include, both belts, 02 sensor, pcv, cabin filter (if equipped), check hoses, supercharger flush/refill.
